Hey Presto!

Some are calling it magic and Presto certainly is getting rave reviews from visitors parking at the airport.

Here's what they're saying: John - "Fantastic value for money"; Vicki - "Quick, easy, reliable and competitively priced for a weekend stay"; Liz - "It made the parking experience easy and convenient"; Kylie - "Drive up to the barrier, pause until it opens, then find a park. Couldn't be simpler!"

Presto is our new online car parking system, which lets visitors to the airport pre-book parking and take advantage of deals only offered online. Just as people book their travel online, they are booking their airport parking online.

Commercial Business Development Manager Anna Powell says online parking booking is the latest step in the airport overhauling its parking offer.

"We began in early June by changing and expanding the choices customers could select when they chose to park at the airport," Anna says. "We said at that time we would introduce the ability to pre-book parking online and Presto is that product.

"We've been surveying customers who have used it and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive."

Anna says the top seller is the Long Weekender, where customers park for the weekend in Long Stay from $29. She is also noticing a lot of Presto sales are at the drive-up rates, not the discount deals, because customers love the ease of not taking a ticket and having the barrier arm magically rise for them.
